The tutor will not know ALL the answers to EVERY question.
The Tutor is::
Is a valuable resource
Works with students to identify present academic goals
Encourages independent learning
Provides praise & constructive feedback
The Tutor is not:
A homework machine
A miracle worker
If the student procrastinated throughout the semester, cramming with a tutor the week before finals will not produce great results.
The student is expected to be:
Be an active participant
Contribute in their sessions
Bring all relevant materials, including textbooks,
syllabus, class notes and past papers and tests to each tutoring session
Students should prepare by:
Trying homework problems
It’s important to remember that tutoring is a two-way street – one in which students play a very active role.
